Balsamic Berry Salad

Are you looking for something easy yet fabulous to make the mom in your life for Mother’s Day? You will be the hero of the day with Balsamic Berry Salad. I call it a salad for lack of a better word. I’ve served this as the starter for a fancy dinner party, and I’ve also served this as dessert for brunch. I think your mom is going love Balsamic Berry Salad. I watched Ina Garden make this salad on her Barefoot Contessa show, and she was making it for breakfast.

Nothing beats fresh fruit, and the balsamic vinegar adds a tangy sweetness. Don’t make fun of mom if she drinks the syrup from the bottom of the dish.
